Relatives of New Winthorpes resident Vincia James said they are offering a $2,500 reward to anyone who provides information that helps to find her. She’s one of two women reported missing last week.
James, 26, was last seen leaving her workplace, Dixie Betting Company located on the second floor of an Old Parham Road business, at around 1:10 pm on Friday.
A social media alert being circulated said James was last seen wearing a pair of long blue jeans and an orange top.
A family member who spoke to OBSERVER media assured that the cash reward will be paid as they wish to find their loved one.
The police have reportedly reviewed surveillance cameras in the area and detained at least one person of interest, but up to the time of going to press, the young mother of one had not been located.
The family member who did not wish to be named, said relatives are “utterly distraught”, adding that they are anxiously hoping to hear she is found unharmed.
Meanwhile, the search is also ongoing for 21-year-old Osuide Simpson of Bathlodge, who is reportedly mentally ill.
Simpson was last seen on Monday and her mother told OBSERVER media that she recently spoke to the young woman at Bevon House, a half-way home. She said her daughter told her that the medication she was taking was making her feel ill.
The mother said she later received a call in the early hours of Tuesday, indicating that her daughter was missing from the half-way home.
According to her, the staff told police they found a letter, reportedly penned by Simpson, indicating she did not wish to live there anymore.
The mother said she believes her offspring may have wandered off and fallen unconscious in the Villa area.
Like James’ relatives, she’s asking residents to call the nearest police station if they have information regarding the whereabouts of her daughter.
